Abdellatif Kechiche and Adele Exarchopoulos

After being at the center of last year's highly reviewed and highly contentious Palme d'Or winner "Blue Is the Warmest Color," French director Abdellatif Kechiche has set sights on his follow-up film: "The Wound."

Adapted from the novel "La Blessure" by Francois Begaudeau (the author of the source material for 2008's Cannes winner "The Class"), the film will follow a fifteen-year-old French boy during a 1986 summer in Tunisia. 

The film is eyeing an August start date. No word yet on casting. But those who do sign on will go into the project knowing all about Kechiche's intense method of working -- "Blue" stars Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos weren't afraid to speak up last year about the exhausting hours and endless takes (not to mention inordinately lengthy sex-scene filming) they underwent while on his set. Our TOH! interview with the two actresses is here.

Haven't seen "Blue Is the Warmest Color"? It's streaming on Netflix.

    How much the choice of story tells of the person who must position him/herself around such themes. To 'direct'.
    Get your kicks under everyone's noses, that's how to play it, and no-one can accuse one of anything.
